The structure will be the site of the royal cremation of HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who passed away in his 89th year on October 13.
“We will have to prepare two-thirds of the area of Sanam Luang’s southern zone for the construction,” Deputy Bangkok Governor Pol Lt-General Amnuay Nimmano said Wednesday.
He said tents would have to be relocated before the end of next week.
Amnuay also said homeless people would not be allowed to stay overnight in Sanam Luang as the ground was a sacred venue for the country’s major royal ceremonies.
